Here’s the low down on watch parties around the ATX for the very first match against Los Angeles FC. Kick off is set for 5 p.m. (CT) on Saturday, April 17. The game will be televised nationally on FOX TV.
Austin FC Watch Party at the Long Center
The OFFICIAL watch party of Austin FC will be downtown on the lawn of the Long Center (aka H-E-B Terrace and Hartman Concert Park). The Long Center will create ‘pods’, consisting of up to four persons each. Unfortunately, seating is limited to the first 1,000 persons and pods filled up within 20 minutes (by our count) of the sign up form being posted. Food trucks and concession options for fans will be onsite, with QR code options available to assist with lines.
